Promo post and Review for Always You by Missy Johnson

I was thrilled when I was offered a graduate teaching position at the prestigious Tennerson Girls Academy. At twenty-three, this would be my first ‘real’ teaching assignment. Working at the elite boarding school, home to the daughters of some of the wealthiest people in the world, was a great opportunity that I would’ve been stupid to pass up.

One week into my new job, and I suddenly had no idea why I chose high school…I was a seventeen year old boy once, I knew how teenage girls behaved.

You can’t even imagine the hell of trying to teach thirty, hormonal driven seventeen year olds who have been cooped up, away from any male contact.

I could handle the whispers every time I entered the room. I could even handle the obvious attempts at gaining my attention. What I couldn’t handle was her…

Rich bitches and way too many rules. Was it any wonder that I hated school?

Add to that the lack of male contact, and I was going insane. Like literally. I wasn’t used to this. A year ago I was normal. I had a boyfriend, friends and a loving family. There is nothing normal about me anymore, and nobody here lets me forget that.

My name is Wrenn, and I’m only here because my aunt took me in after what happened, but my aunt also happens to be the headmistress of this academy…Can you see my problem?

I’m hated for my lack of money, and I’m hated for who my Aunt is.

Then he arrived. Dalton Reed. My new history teacher.

Slowly, he helped me see that even in the worst situations, there is always hope.

I really loved this book and it captured my interest and held it throughout. I'm kind of iffy on the whole Student/teacher relationship, it can be really hot or creepy. However in this book it worked and their relationship was very powerful and made me easily accept their 'forbidden' romance. It also helped that the book wasn't just focused on it and had many more issues that the characters had to work through.  I had a hard time putting the book down. I needed to know if things would work out and if they were going to get caught.

Wren has come to live with her aunt, who is head mistress at an all girls private school, after her whole family dies in a car accident that only she survived. The accident has changed who she is and has kept her from opening up. She has only one friend Kass, who I loved and hope gets her own book because I need to know her story. She has her future planned out and is focused on accomplishing her goals. 

Dalton, swoon, is a recent graduate and has taken on a temporary teaching position at Wrenn's school.  He's hot and young and of course all of the girls want him. He has a secret and while you kind of know what it is, you don't get the full story until closer to the end of the book. 

Wren and Dalton have a lot in common and that is what draws them together. Wren wants more from Dalton then just a friendship, but he tries to push her away not because he is her teacher but because of his secret. In my opinion they fit so well together and were destined to find each other. 

This book made me laugh, cry and fall in love. So if you looking for a standalone book that touches your heart and has great characters, then make sure you read Always You. I can't wait to read more from this author.

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
